                         RAVENSCROFT, John Stark, first bishop of North Carolina and 20th in succession in
                         the American episcopate, was born near Blanford, Va., in 1772; son of Dr. John and ——
                         (Miller) Ravenscroft; grandson of Hugh Miller, and a descendant of Scotch ancestors. His
                         parents returned to Scotland during his infancy, and he attended school there, and in the
                         north of England until January, 1789, when he returned to the United States. He studied
                         law in the College of William and Mary; went to Scotland in 1792 to settle his father's
                         estate, and on his return reinvested his money in an estate in Lunenburg county, Va.,
                         which he managed and where he lived a wild and irreligious life. In 1810 he joined a
                         religious body known as the Republican Methodists, and in 1815, being moved to enter
                         the ministry, he applied to the Rt. Rev. Richard Channing Moore, bishop of Virginia, for
                         admission to the diaconate and pursued his theological studies under the direction of the
                         bishop. He labored meantime as a lay-reader in the parishes of Cumberland and St.
                         James; was ordered deacon, April 25, 1817, and advanced to the priesthood, May 6, 1817,
                         by Bishop Moore. He was rector of St. James's church, Boydton, Mecklenburg county,
                         Va., 1817–1823; declined two calls and was elected in 1823 first bishop of North
                         Carolina, which diocese had been organized in 1817, and he was consecrated in St. Paul's
                         church, Philadelphia, Pa., May 22, 1823, by Bishops White, Kemp and Croes, assisted by
                         Bishops Bowen and Brownell. In addition to his duties as bishop he assumed the
                         rectorship of Christ church, Raleigh, which afforded him a home and salary enabling him
                         to administer the affairs of a diocese too poor to pay a bishop's salary. In 1828 his health
                         began to fail, and he relinquished the charge of Christ church, and assumed that of St.
                         John's church, Williamsborough. He attended the general convention of 1829 at
                         Philadelphia. He was married first, to a daughter of Lewis Burwell of Mecklenburg
                         county, and secondly, to a Miss Buford of Lunenburg county, Va. He received the degree
                         D.D. from Columbia college, from the College of William and Mary and from the
                         University of North Carolina, in 1823. He published several sermons and addresses,
                         which were collected together with sixty-one additional sermons, as: "Sermons and
                         Memoir of the Life of Bishop John Stark Ravenscroft, edited by the Rev. Dr. J. M.
                         Wainwright" (2 vols., 1830). He died in Williamsborough, N.C., March 5, 1830.

stationed at the falls of the Ohio River in 1780 with Col. George Slaughter's corps. Benjamin Field received the
appointment of ensign in Capt. Thomas' company in the summer of that year and served until the deponent received
a leave of absence the next fall to return to Virginia. He understood Field also returned to Vlrginia the same fall. The
deponent came down the river to the falls of the Ohio with Col. Crockett's regiment in the spring of 1781. He met
Benjamin Field in the Red Stone country in the spring of 1781 and understood he had been promoted to a captaincy
in a troop of horse in the Virginia State Library. Field raised his company of horse, in which Thomas Ravenscroft
was an officer. They came to the falls of the Ohlo, now Louisville, in the spring or early summer of 1781, perhaps in
June with Col. Crockett's regiment and were stationed there. Part of the troop was at some of the stations near the
falls and part was under Col. Floyd when defeated by the Indians in September of that year. Thomas Ravenscroft
and others were taken prisoner and Robert Ravenscroft was killed. The deponent was raised near Field in Virginia
and they were acquainted from boys.

defeat. In the fall of 1781 the time of enlistment of the deponent's company expired and he left the falls as a
supernumerary officer and did not return. He believes Field was in service to the end of the war as supernumerary.

p. 75-76: 13 July 1838. Shelbyville, Ky. James Ballard, now in the 76th or 77th year of his age, declares ln 1779 he
became acquainted with Capt. Benjamin Field in Spotsylvania or Culpeper Co., Va. Field and the deponent's family
came to Kentucky. He thinks Field acted as an ensign in Slaughter's corps for some time. He was acquainted witb
Field in 1781 at the falls of the Ohio. In the spring of 1781 Fields was in command of a troop of horse and continued
in command until a few days before Floyd's defeat when a large portion of his troop was required to go to Boon's

as the remainder of the whites. Field was left without a command.

--------------
Thomas Ravenscraft was born about 1750, and brought up in the family of Col. William Crawford. His first military
service was in Dunmore's army in 1774; the next year (1775) he enlisted in Capt. John Stevenson's company, and
later joined the 13th Virginia under Colonel Russell. Discharged at the close of 1777 or early in 1778, he was out
with Hand on this expedition [Squaw Campaign], and in 1781 enlisted under Clark for service in an expedition to
Detroit, with a commission as lieutenant. Clark's expedition having been abandoned, Ravenscroft was employed in
guarding the frontier. When out with Col. John Floyd in September, 1781, he was captured and taken prisoner to
Detroit - see original letter of Floyd, relating this event, in Draper MSS., 51J89.

From Detroit he was sent down to Montreal and there (June 20, 1782) made his escape, but was shortly recaptured -

see Canadian Archives, 1887, p. 307. At the close of the Revolution, Ravenscroft was exchanged and returned to
Kentucky, where he married either the widow or daughter of Col. John Hinkston. He was living in Harrison County,
Ky., as late as 1823. - ED. [10]
----------
Capt. Thomas Ravenscraft was well known in the early settlement of this county as a most successful Indian fighter
and stood high among all his acquaintenances. In the War of 1812 raised a company of volunteers and served some
12 months west. Credit to hinself and company. He resided in this county about 6 miles above Cynthiana on the
bank of South Licking and just below the mouth of Townsend. On examining the county clerks records I find his
will admitted to record 1st Monday in Augt. 1827. He had some 5 sons and as many daughters. All of whom have
removed to the state of Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. Except one son and one daughter who are living I believe on the
old home place. He has several grand sons and daughters living in this county.

Memo - Tho. Ravenscraft was a pensioner. See census of pensioners of 1820 p. 614. See also history of Illinois
regiment, 4th, p. 11 - there as a lieutenant. See also Capt. Samuel Murphy's notes of conversation.

whom he went to Falls of the Ohio in 1781, and was taken prisoner by the Indians; carried to Detroit and detained as
prisoner over 2 years until the close of the war. He was tomahawked on the head in the "defeat" of Floyd.

He was in the battle at Sullivan's Island, also later at Guiahamaga on big Beaver near Pittsburgh Penn under Capt.
Belt in 13th regiment.

The above is a synopsis of Ravenscraft‘s pension statement, under the act of 1818 in need of Gov't support.
Samuel Murphy gives further particulars of him - in his notes. Perhaps B.W. Ballard also.

*In the Pension list of 1835, Ravenscraft is shown to have been placed on the pension list in Aug 1818 at the age of
68 - which would fix his birth in 1750.
This record also shows that the pension was suspended under act of May 1, 1820.
Ravenscraft's name does not appear as a pensioner under the act of 1832. Hence his death must occurred between
1820 and 1832 - I presume not far from 1825. [12]
---------
Dial's Notes - Shane iii, 227
He was sent to Montreal a prisoner - confined in a house surrounded with pickets, allowed to exercise in the yard
during the day; when by preconcert he and 6 other prisoners scaled the walls (this perhaps 1782) and escaped to the
woods, there they separated, crossed the river; but having no compass he and two companions, Capt. Thos. Stokely
one of them getting lost, were recaptured by Indians and carried back. [13] [14]
----------
Note from Jim Sellars: I saw the muster roll for Capt. Ravenscraft in a book about the Battle of Thames. According
to the book his company was in the battle. From what I remember, these are some of your family who were in the
company.

Commissioner of Pensions

know which) for services as Captain in the Revolutionary War. He or his heirs at the time the grant was made lived
in the neighborhood of Richard M. Johnson, Ky., and is mainly through his influence the grant was made. Now in
if you will be kind enough to inform me whether all the money was drawn and where the land lies I will be

State who being by me first duly sworn according to law doth make the following declaration in order to obtain the
provision made by the late act of Congress entitled an act to provide for certain persons engaged in the land and
naval services by the United States in the revolutionary war. That he enlisted at Pittsburgh in the State of
Pennsylvania in the company (illegible) by Capt. John Stevenson of the 8th Virginia regiment commonly called the
German Regiment because it was commanded by Genl Muhlenburgh on the Continental establishment. That the
period of his first enlistment in said company was in the year 1775 where he remained for about one year and then
joined the 13th Regiment under a Captain Bell which was also of the Continental line, in which latter company he
remained a soldier for about three years, & then was promoted to an Ensign, & that he continued in the American
service as an Ensign for about four months when he received the promotion of a Lieutenant in the Light Horse
service under Gen. George Rogers Clarke to the Falls of the Ohio in the year 1787, when he was taken prisoner by
the Indians at the Battle usually called Floyd‘s Defeat, That after being so captured he was taken by the British &

the Indians to Detroit where he remained a prisoner of war for about two years and then released at the general
exchanges of prisoners at the close of the war--That during his whole period of service aforesaid he was in the Battle
of Sullivan‘s Island and afterwards in the Battle of Guiahawga on Big Beaver near Pittsburgh in Capt. Bell‘s
company of the 13th Virginia Regt during which time he received several wounds and at Floyd‘s Defeat was
tomahawked by the Indians on the head of the effects of which latter wound he has never since recovered. That from
his reduced circumstances in life he stands in need of assistance from his country for support and that he has no
other evidence now in his power of his said services--

In the settlement of the claim under the act of the 5th July 1832, of the Heirs of Thomas Ravenscraft, dec‘d in
November 1837 half-pay was allowed for his services as a Lieutenant of Infantry, as it was not known when the

24. Harrison MILLER. Born on September 8, 1831.

Harrison Miller, one of the well-known and representative men of Rush Co., was
born where he now resides, September 8, 1831, son of Aaron and Polly
(Ravencroft) Miller, and is of German descent. His father was born in Virginia
in 1789 and died in Rush Co april 19, 1874. The paternal grandfather of our
subject was Jacob Miller, a native of Germany, and who came to the United States
prior to the Revolutionary War and settled in Virginia, but subsequently removed
to Harrison Co., KY where the mother of our subject was born in 1801, and who
died in Rush Co. Ind. in 1876. The maternal grandfather of Mr. Miller was Thomas
Ravencroft, also a Virginian, and who spent seven years of his life in the
Revolutionary War, and he was a Captain in the War of 1812. His death took place
in Kentucky. The Miller family came to Rush Co. in 1830, and settled in the
southwest part of Rushville Township. Mr. Miller is the fourth in a family of
nine children born, seven of whom are now living. He was raised on the farm and
attended the country schools, but gained the major part of his education through
his own efforts after he became twenty-three years of age. In the fall of 1856,
Mr. Miller went to Jasper Co. Ill. and taught school in that county during the
winter of 1856-7, and then returned to Rush county and continued schoolteaching
for twelve years, during the winter season. In 1860, Mr. Miller, began farming
on rented land. In 1862, Mr. Miller removed to Van Buren Township, Shelby County
where he farmed three years, and then returned to Rush County, and in 1867
settled where he now resides. he is one of the enterprising farmers of the
county, and now owns 400 acres of well improved land. In 1860, our subject was
united in marriage to Miss Mary F. Thomas, who died September 9, 1865, and by
that union are these two children: Margaret and Ulysses S.G. The second marriage
of our subject was solemnized April 25, 1867 to Miss Irene Webb, who was born in
this county, July 5, 1828, daughter of Cuthbert and Hannah (Knotts) Webb,
natives of Virginia and Ohio, respectively, and were among the pioneers of this
county. In politics our subject is a firm and true friend of the Republican
party. In 1863, he was commissioned Captain, by Governor Oliver P. Morton, of
the Hancock and Shelby Co. Home Guards. Mr. Miller is a true gentleman and an
upright and honorable man, and wherever he is known, he is highly respected.

----------
HARTFORD TOWNSHIP
Hartford Township, at the southwestern end of Pike County, is bounded by Indian and Ashley townships on the
north, Lincoln County on the east, Montgomery and Lincoln Counties on the south, and Audrain County on the
west.

In the early 1800's, the area abounded in both woodland and prairie, and therefore was attractive to early settlers
who needed both for their dwellings and the pursuit of agriculture, Indian Creek, running through the township,
empties into the Cuivre River, and it abounds in springs, the best known of which is Moore Spring, two miles south
of the town of New Hartford.

The township had a few settlers as early as 1819, among which was the Mastin Moore family whose descendants
still live in New Hartford 160 years later. Most of these settlers came from Virginia and Kentucky. John Keith, who
arrived in the 1820's, was perhaps the first settler in what would become the town of New Hartford.

The township suffered from inaccessibility in its early history due to the lack of ground roads or rail service. The
first gravel road in the township was built from Ashley to New Hartford in the early 1900's. Electricity came to the
township in 1935, principally through the efforts of a resident, Mrs. Lyss Moore. Electricity was 32 years behind the
telephone in Hartford Township, as the first telephone was introduced at New Hartford in 1903.

Hartford township even had its own amusement park. In 1911, William D. Motley cleared some of his property for
this purpose. The amusement park was located south of New Hartford on the west bank of Indian Creek near the
bridge. An ice house was constructed at the site to supply the needs of the community through the summer months;
and cold soft drinks, lemonade, cigars and candy were available to the residents and tourists who would reportedly
spend hours there playing croquet and pitching horse shoes. The amusement park was described as "an ideal place
for school picnics, family reunions, and for gypsies to camp"!

Grain mills were a common sight in the Hartford township of the 19th Century, and there were horse-powered mills,
as well as those powered by the water from Indian Creek. There was also one steam mill, operated by Wesley Cole
and his son, Frank. Northeast of New Hartford was a sawing and grinding mill operated by Enoch Martin and later
another mill owned by Dr. Kerr. In 1980 all of these mills have vanished.

The only two towns within Hartford township are Gazette and New Hartford.

Gazette
Gazette, a small settlement in northwestern Hartford township, once had a post office, telephone office, general
store, blacksmith, a few churches and rural schools. Mrs. Charley (Carrie) Moore, who lived in this area for over 65
years, remembers Gazette: "a wonderful place to trade. The store carried most anything a farmer needed from eggs
to all kinds of poultry, cream and feathers." Mrs. Moore recalls when Gazette had a rural mail route and one star
route from Vandalia, Missouri, and the mail carriers traveled in two-wheel carts, as all of the roads were dirt. Mrs.
Moore attended the Rudd school and remembers walking to school. The teacher arrived early to start the wood stove
burning. All eight grades were together, and the one teacher often had as many as 30 students. The old Trower
school, which is also in this area, later became the building for the Gazette Baptist Church. While the churches still
stand, the other facilities, which once made up the town of Gazette, have long since ceased functioning.

New Hartford, the larger town in Hartford township, is located along Indian Creek. Although the area where New
Hartford stands was first settled in 1819 or 1820, the town did not receive its name until it was divided into plots in
1871 by Judge A. J. Davis. Prior to that time, the small settlement was known as the Paxton Store crossroads. New
Hartford received its name from the township of which it is a part.

New Hartford has been since its beginning, and remains in 1981, primarily an agricultural area. John Parsons from
Virginia, the first carpenter who came to New Hartford, arrived in 1830. Soon blacksmith shops and machine shops
were established there, and New Hartford became a center of commerce and trade. Lodge buildings, churches and a
school were constructed and a post office was established for the village of New Hartford on April 8, 1867. There
was even a hotel in town. New Hartford was kept from blossoming, however, by the poor road system leading to
major markets and the lack of rail service in the township through the 1800's. In the 1980's New Hartford consists of
a grocery, a post office, a community hall, the New Hartford Baptist Church and some 30 inhabitants. The early
schoolhouse built in 1820 is long since gone, and the rural school most recently used is now a residence with the
school children from Hartford being bussed to Bowling Green for their education.

They had the following children:
      47          i.      Nancy Shawhan (1851-1931)
      48         ii.      John Thomas (1854-1916)
                iii.      Nicholas M. Born on October 31, 1863. Nicholas M. died in Pike County, Missouri on
                          October 28, 1946; he was 82. Buried in Smyrna Cemetery, Pike County, Missouri.
                          ―Nicholas M. Smith…never married, but visited among his sisters, spending most of the
                          time with Nancy and her husband, ―Uncle Billie.‖ He was buried in the Old Settlers
                          Graveyard, known as ―Smyrna‖ Churchyard, where many of the same family are buried.‖

I know you said you did not have much on the Culp's, but if anything here rings and bells, I would appreciate any
help on my Culp line. I myself only located John's siblings in the last week.

Have you fixed the marriages of Julia Sarah "Sallie" Ravenscroft's marriages on your web page?

Do you know the first name of the McCune man she married - did they have any children?

In 1859 when Julia Sarah ―Sallie‖ was 50, she second married Henry Ewalt SHAWHAN, son of Joseph
SHAWHAN (1781-1871) & Sarah "Sallie" EWALT (1783-1837). Born on November 20, 1805 in Cynthiana,
Kentucky. Henry Ewalt died in Cynthiana, Kentucky on March 4, 1882; he was 76.

HENRY E. SHAWHAN
Late president of National Bank of Cynthiana. He was a farmer and prominent businessman of Harrison County,
Kentucky; was born November 20, 1805 and died at his residence near Cynthiana on March 4, 1882. His parents
were Joseph and Sallie (Ewalt) Shawhan. His grandfathers, Daniel Shawhan and Henry Ewalt, were both from
Alleghany County, Pennsylvania.

His father, Joseph Shawhan, was born in the county and emigrated to this state with his children in 1788 and settled
in Bourbon County. In 1816 Joseph moved to Harrison, where he died on September 16, 1871. He was a soldier of
the War of 1812 and was for several terms a member of the Kentucky Legislature. He followed agricultural pursuits,
was of Scotch-lrish extraction and was one of the most influential and valuable men in his county. At the time of his
death he owned and had interest in several of the largest distilleries in the country and owned more land than any
man in Harrison County.

Joseph was married in 1800 to Sallie, daughter of Henry and Elizabeth Ewalt of Bourbon County. The result of this
union was seven children. (Only one now lives: Mrs. Margaret Miller, who lives with her son, William Miller, in
Bourbon County. She is well stricken in years.) Sallie Ewalt, our subject's mother, was of German origin, but was a
Bourbon County woman by birth and also belonged to one of the oldest pioneer families of the state. Her son, Henry
E. Shawhan, of whom we write, was raised on the farm, his education being confined to the country schools as
organized in his boyhood days.

He was actively engaged on the farm until 1838. In that year he turned his attention to the making of whisky and
built a distillery in Harrison County, four miles from Cynthiana. From that time to 1869, in connection with his
farming interests, he continued distilling and buying and selling whisky of various distilleries in that county.

In 1864 he took an interest in the grocery house of Shawhan and Jewett of Cynthiana. The following year he formed
a partnership with Joseph Shawhan in the same business. In the following year he bought the interest of his partner
and was sole proprietor of one of the largest grocery businesses in Cynthiana.

In 1874 he became one of a number of capitalists who undertook to build a narrow gauge railroad from Mount
Sterling to the mountains into the coal and iron region of eastern Kentucky. Several miles of this road are in actual
operation and its great local importance is now largely felt. It was the ultimate purpose of the originators of this
valuable enterprise to terminate the road at Cynthiana. Mr. Shawhan was for several years one of the directors of this
railroad and was largely interested in the state and the future success of the road.


                                                      Page 27
                                                 Register Report


In 1871 he was elected president of the National Bank of Cynthiana, which position he ably filled to the time of his
death. He was always a Democrat and during the rebellion his sympathies were strongly with the cause of the south.

He was a man of sterling qualities, unmarred by deep prejudices, of plain, unaffected, honest manner, moved
through life without show or pretense, was of irreproachable integrity of character and was a man of great physical
endurance.

 ..... Shawhan was three times married:

October 20, 1835 to Mary Varnon, daughter of John Varnon, a Bourbon County farmer. She died in 1842. Two
years later he was married to Sallie Pugh (nee Cantrill), who died in 1857. In 1859 he married Sallie Cult, a native of
Bourbon County and daughter of John Ravenscraft, a pioneer of that country. He is the father of eight children. [34]

They had one child:

                                                 Register Report


"After Julia's death, John Thomas Smith raised his five children with the help of his sisters and relatives, who lived
nearby. Nancy Shawhan Smith Vanarsdale took the baby John Frances Smith for a while until he was old
enough to be cared for by the girls at home. This family of children lived on the road between Gazette, Mo. and
Vandalia, Mo. in a house which was then next door to the old Clithero place, not far up the road from the Chandler
place, both places still known by those names even now in 1951. When his family were growing up up, many
incidents of interest happened to them which have been told in 'Meet My Association' by Isobel Chandler Madsen,
a manuscript in preparation to preserve the tales of interest and general knowledge about the years gone by. The
house where they lived has long since been moved to another location." [39]
"He studied law and practiced it, along with farming, and running horses at the County Fairs, raising his own
tobacco, and making most of his own liquor using malt that he made himself from his own barley shoots. He was a
gregarious and vocal character, known as "Squire" and "Judge" in the county where he was widely acquainted. He
sang well, and often led the singing at revivals and in the church. He was the Superintendent of the church at Estes,
but would never join it because he did not want to pin his religious convictions to any creed that was not flexible.
What the denomination of the church at Estes was, I have not learned, but I doubt that it made much difference to
grandfather. He was a fun-loving man, and liked to hear himself talk, and he liked people. His funeral in Pike
County was almost as big an affair in the county as was that of Adolph Busch in St. Louis, which he and a trainload
of politicians attended, staying for three days and having the time of their lives." [40]

80. Margaret Melvina SMITH. Born on November 28, 1881 in Pike County, Missouri.

―Margaret Melvina Smith and Oscar William Chandler married December 24, 1899, Pike County, Mo., by Rev.
Oaks. They lived the first year with the family of Matthew and Cornelia Chandler, Vandalia, Mo., on (the) road to
Gazette, on the Old Home Place, and then they struck out on their own, and continued to strike out for a good many
years. They made their first real home for their children in the county seat of Pike County, Bowling Green, Mo.,
and years later in Warren, Ohio, another county seat. They managed to have three children, and to educate them as
they went along in public schools and high schools. Then the children left home to go away to college, and they
really began to learn things, and never stopped learning more and more amazing things during the years when more
changes were taking place that at any other time in history…changes in the average man‘s fundamental beliefs, in
his philosophy, in his conception of religion, in his manner of governmental spread, in his whole world outlook, in
transportation, communication, education…indeed more changes than occurred durinmg the preceeding 4000 years
all put together! In the lifetime of these children giant intellects in science were learning how to control nature in
its application to human life. If it is true that problems are better teachers than lectures, then these children lived
when all about them were problems, some being solved temporarily, and some left wide open to see working into
chaos, getting deeper into chaos and farther away from a solution. [43]

24. The placement of COL Samuel Ewalt as the son of John Ewalt and Elizabeth Ravenscraft is purely speculative at
this juncture. The reasons for placing him here is that (1) Jerry and Janice Dewitz mentions a "mother" of Samuel
named "Sarah" in an explanation of the description of Ewalt land: "Notes: The "Ewalt Land" referred to above
was owned by Sarah, mother of Samuel Ewalt, who married Nicholas III's sister Margaret. The old stone house
pictured on the next page is the old David Family home, referred to above, which still stands." (Jerry and Janice
Dewitz, "Before You," Alpha Publishing Group, Houston, Texas, 1997, p. 125) John Ewalt married Sarah Flowers
in June, 1844, which would have made her Samuel‘s step-mother. A second piece of evidence is the Stonermouth
Presbyterian Church, Ruddle‘s Mills, Ky, cemetery listing. An "Ewalt, John Sr., 1791-1857" is listed along with
COL Samuel Ewalt "1826-1868." This dating places John Ewalt, Sr., as a real possibility as Samuel‘s father.

Prior to receiving the Dewitz information and the Ruddle‘s Mills cemetery listing, I had the following information
on John Ewalt: Birth:      1789     Paris, Bourbon County, KY Father: Henry EWALT (1754-1829) Mother:

With the new information, the pieces of the puzzle come together. It looks as if Samuel, the last son of John and
Elizabeth Ewalt, may have actually been born in 1826. Elizabeth is mentioned as dying sometime before 1827.
She may have died giving birth to Samuel.
25. Margaret‘s will (Will Bk. U, pp. 151-152) was probated in the Bourbon County Court, January term, January 21,
1904.
26. Bourbon County, Kentucky, Will Bk. U, pp. 151-151
27. The birth and death data for this child was taken from a cemetery listing of the old Stonermouth Cemetery,
Ruddell‘s Mills, Bourbon County, Kentucky, by Hattie Scott and Julia Ardery, December 15, 1928. The list is from
―Presbyterianism in Paris and Bourbon County, Kentucky, 1786-1961‖ by Rev. Robert Stuart Sanders, D. D., The
Dunne Press, Louisville, Kentucky, 1961, p. 267. While there is no proof that this is the child of Samuel Ewalt and
Margaret Elizabeth Smith, circumstancial evidence points in that direction. The listing is found above the name
―Ewalt, Col. Samuel, born Feb. 6, 1826, died 1868.‖ The child‘s inscription reads: Ewalt, Nancy Kate, dau. of
C.S. and E.M. Ewalt, b. 1852, di. 1867.‖ The initials ―C. S.‖ may stand for ―Col. Samuel‖ and ―E. M.‖ may be
transposed initials for ―Margaret Elizabeth.‖ Also, the first name ―Nancy‖ may have been a family name for
Margaret‘s mother Nancy Shawhan Smith. --REF

37. SMYRNA CHURCH
This congregation was organized under the auspices of the Cumberland

Presbyterian Church in July 1853 by Rev. George Rice. When they organized there were only seven members but in
less than a week the number increased to nineteen. The first seven were; Darius McDonald, Elizabeth McDonald, E.
A. Coffman, Winifred Coffman, Adam F. Trainer, Cyrus McDonald and Corelia A. Trower.

Among the elders who served this church were Darius McDonald, Adam F. Trainer, Henry Trainer, William Dums,
Robert M. Vannoy, George Wagner, Cyrus McDonald, Z. B. Blackmore and William M. VanArsdel. [45]
38. Madsen, p. 30. Note: There is a picture of Nancy Shawhan Smith Vanarsdall with two ―golden-haired‖
children are staqnding in front of a young woman and tall man. My guess is that the tall man is Willie Vanarsdall
and the young woman is his wife Stella. The two girls are Nancy‘s grandchildren.--REF, October 22, 1999.

41. Nancy Shawhan Smith once told my grandfather John Frances (8) Smith that Julia Trower died of "Milk Leg."

                                                 Register Report

My wife (Cindy Francis), an RN, looked up Milk Leg and gave the following definition: Postpartum
thrombophlebitis. Infection of the lining of a blood vessel where a clot has attached to the vessel wall.

Onset is usually between the 10th and 20th post partum (about the same time breast milk comes in full--hence, the
name "milk leg"). Can lead to pulminary embolism and death related to obstruction of the circulation to the lung.
